They want foot traffic. I'm sure someone will leak the price in the next week or so.

Won't matter much anyway. Best Buy is well on their way to being the next Circuit City.

Typically, no. Black Friday specials are door busters. They want you in the store and foot traffic with the expectation that you will purchase more than just those items on super special.

Last year I got a 53" TV at a sweet price at hh Gregg.

I've been toying the idea of a new basic type laptop. Was looking at the Samsung Chromebook but forgot about Black Friday deals. Will have to keep an eye out

Ok, I've never ever done Black Friday shopping. I can't stand the idea of a stampede of humans. But now that I have a family and a new house and all my interest has been peaked.

A question to the more experienced shoppers... Is it fair to assume that the sale prices you find at the store are "best" prices for that specific item? Or is it a case of making sure you find the flyer and do the research before you go?

Too many times I've seen a product online or at store and sworn that was a great price only to find out through my friends Google, Amazon, and Woot that the same product can easily be found for the same or less, and that even "like new" or refurbished versions at deep discount are readily available.

don't ever go black friday shopping, it's a horrible waste of time for shitty deals. I went last year since it was my first year not working retail 24/7 and honestly it's better to work black friday than to shop on black friday.

I've worked at both BB and CC in the past so can speak from personal experience. In reference to "doorbuster" TVs, PCs, and sometimes cameras, a lot of the time these items are made just for BF for specific retailers. So there is no comparison to be had, since what you see is what you get. In the case that they are not "exclusive" models, you are correct in saying a lot of the time they can be had for a similar prices, minus the lines and hassle shortly after BF. Most of the people that are in line (in the front), do it for the sake of doing it, not because they are getting such a great deal.

Related, but sort of off topic - The retailers have drastically changed their opening times. About 6-7 years ago when I was at CC, they opened on BF at like 4/5 AM. Now most of the big stores are opening at 12 and will stay open for 24 hours. Obviously an effort to pad the numbers and their wallets; not relieve the crowds as they have claimed.

If you are planning on going out there and have your heart set on actually getting one the doorbuster items (TV, PC, tablet, or Blu-ray player; everything else will be there), you better kiss your Thanksgiving away. The people in the front of the start lining up on Wednesday evening/night, sometimes Tuesday (usually in the warmer states, and depending the "deal").

TL;DR
All in all, IMO stay your ass at home. Cyber Monday is getting to be almost as "good" as Black Friday anyway.

This. Best (most fun) day to work retail; worst day to shop.

+1

With the popularity of sites like Fatwallet, there is exactly ZERO chance of getting any of the good door buster deals. The only 'deals' left over is saving $1 on DVDs and other random BS.
